I'm too young to remember when Jimmy Piersall and Harry Caray were the brodcast duo for the Sox. I've heard stories from my family.
I guess one time Piersall once was yelling out of the press box challenging Eric Soderholm to a fight during a game.

Does anyone have any more stories concerning these two characters or where I could go to find some.

It'd be much appreciated.

Thanks Daver!

Piersall sounded like quite the character.

Caray too.

If only I was born 15 years earlier.

When LaRussa was manager, I believe there was a physical confrontation between our current bullpen coach Art Kusnyer, then a LaRussa coach, and Jimmy

Man George you reduced me to tears. That Kusnyer LaRussa Leyland incident was at the TV STUDIO! At a Milwaukee game in 1973 Harry almost fell down the net behind the plate reaching for a foul ball with his net. We went back there and told him we were from Chicago and he arranged free FALSTAFF for my friends and I. WHAT a guy!! The phrase
" that wouldn't be a homerun in a phone booth" has followed me through all levels of ball I've played. It was Riensdorfs first huge mistake letting Harry and Jimmy go.
